Plotting an implicit function

I have the following implicit function:
f[r, M]=1 + (-1 - 0.03*M^2 + 
    1.2*M)*r - (0.05*E^(r*M)/r - 0.05/r + E^(r*M)*(1 - 0.05*M))==0

where r is a function of M i.e. r(M).

I would like to plot r(M) vs M, for {M,0,20}.

I tried using
 ImplicitPlot[{f[r,M] == 0},{M,0,20}], but Solve is having problems
finding the roots to my function.

Could someone help me with the code to do this, perhaps using FindRoot


P.S. r > 0
